About me

Industry Education
Occupation Retired teacher
Location Long Island, New York, United States
Introduction My camera, from my first SLR to my current Nikon D300, has always been required gear for my journey through life. I love being outdoors. My other pursuits of boating, beaching, fly-fishing, scuba-diving and traveling fit perfectly with my love of photography. I was born and raised in Brooklyn and moved to Long Island as a young adult. I love where I live! Long Island has so many beautiful beaches and parks with abundant wildlife. It’s just a wonderful place for taking photos! Visit my blog, Long Island Woman to see and read just why I enjoy my Long Island. See my site, for purchase information and to contact me via email. Thank you.
Interests scuba diving, reading, nature, boating, fishing, photography, travel, genealogy, education, hiking, Theatre, New York City, cooking, gardening, art, enjoying the company of family and friends

When you open your eyes underwater, do you ever worry that you'll drown?

I usually have a regulator in my mouth, hooked up to an air tank. I can't think about drowning...that's not a good thing when you're 60' below.
